Stop and Smell the Roses

These beautifully fragrant roses were left by the previous owners of our home.  Her father cultivated an assortment of rose bushes.  Only two remain on the property.  We transplanted this one to a location closer to the other remaining rose bush.  The other rose bush blooms are a stunning crimson color.  This rose bush, while not as spectacular in appearance, has an amazing aroma.  Sometimes, I pick the flowers and place them in a vase near our kitchen sink.  I can do the dishes, overlook our yard, and enjoy the upclose fragrance of this pretty blossom.
